English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar Rhodesian with Silver (HT) (XL) (DR) (***) (2019)

Product Number: 004-002-18584

This is a rare piece from Dunhill, and everything about it is exceptional. It's a unique take on the Rhodesian from the English marque, posing a more Prince-like bend and stronger taper to the rim than their standard "17" Rhodesian design. This slightly less conventional shaping results from this piece having been hand-turned (denoted by the "HT" stamp), with added care and creativity devoted to fashioning the pipe.

Best of all, though, this Root Briar has earned a three star Dead Root grade — "DR" being designated to only the best-grained Root Briar pieces, with the stars adding even more prestigious exclusivity. The bulbous, palm-filling bowl wears a vivid, honey-blonde stain, showcasing windswept flame grain and dense birdseye throughout. There's plenty of grain to go around, too, thanks to the "XL" size designation, and it's topped handsomely with a regal band of sterling silver at the shank end. From form to finish to overall size, this is a rare combination from the esteemed English marque, increasing this pipe's collectability and making for a more-than-worthy centerpiece to any collection.
